Finding Library Resources

Library Search will retrieve items from the physical book stock and provide access to the full-text of some (but not all) of our electronic resources, databases and journals. An excellent starting point if you are not sure which resource to choose.
For a comprehensive overview of the best resources for your subject area, use our Subject Guides.
